Rookie Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 winner Nick Percat continues on for his second season with Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport in 2016. 

Signing with Walkinshaw Racing in 2007, Percat competed in Formula Ford, winning the national title in 2009 and breaking Steven Richards’ record for most race wins.

He then progressed to the V8 Supercars Development Series in 2010 and finished fourth in the standings, earning him an endurance drive alongside Garth Tander in 2011.

The duo claimed victory at the Bathurst 1000, Percat becoming the first rookie winner in 30 years. He remained part of HRT’s endurance lineup while he continued to race full-time in the Dunlop Series until the end of 2012.

In 2013, Percat stepped into the Porsche Carrera Cup and placed second, stacking up a record amount of pole positions and fastest laps. He then substituted for the injured James Courtney in the HRT Commodore at the season-ending Sydney 500 before receiving the full-time call-up in 2014.

Percat’s debut full-time season recorded a second at Eastern Creek and third at the iconic Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. He rounded out the year 12th in the Championship, making him the highest placed rookie.

With LDM last year, highlights included top 10 finishes in Perth, Darwin, Sydney Motorsport Park and on the Gold Coast.

His progress was halted late last year when a blood infection kept him from contesting the final two rounds.
